Two muskrat brothers become displaced due to a storm and end up in a lady’s backyard. They make a big mess back there, and the lady decides it’s time for them to go. She calls a pest control company who comes and sets traps to catch them. He catches one of the muskrats and relocates him in a forest near a pond. He and his brother had never been apart before, and now he was all alone in an unfamiliar place. Some other animals approached him while he was drinking from the pond. They had never seen a muskrat before and were not as welcoming as he would have liked—until the muskrat proved himself worthy of living there by helping the animals defeat a dangerous foe. The other animals realized that he had some unique qualities and skills and did in fact belong at the pond, and they became friends. And someone special may have rejoined the muskrat to make for a happy ending.

story is about ten bees bullying one another while flying around in Mrs. Busys
classroom. The ten bees are buzzing very loud, shouting at one another,
crashing into one another, pushing, shoving, trying to sting the children, and
flying around the classroom while Mrs. Busy is teaching. These are not
acceptable behaviors. The bees are being rude and are trying to bully one
another. All of a sudden, the bees decide being bullies is wrong. Being bullies
to one another is not the correct thing to do. The bees decide to be kind, use
kind language to one another, use good manners, be polite, and set a good
example for the children. Being bullies set a bad example for the children.
Mrs. Busy tells the children to behave nicely to one another. She tells the
children they should not push, hurt, shove, or bully one another. They need to
be thoughtful, kind, and say Excuse me or Im sorry. Being a bully is not the
correct behavior either in school or outside of school or anywhere. Mrs. Busy
tells the children to do their best in school and play together nicely as
bullying hurts the feelings of others. Mrs. Busy lets the children know they
should use only kind words and their indoor voices, they should be good
listeners, and they should not punch, kick, shove, hit, spit, and grab one
another. Bullying hurts others. The ten bees were wrong to hurt one another. No
bullying! Bullying others is not an acceptable behavior. Bullying hurts!

An encounter with a sneezing deer provides their father with an opportunity to teach the boys about respecting wildlife and staying alert for danger. Knowing more about the park’s wildlife helps the boys have more fun while staying safe. They discover staying quiet and moving slowly makes it easier to see the animals and birds that call the park home.

J.A. and his wife enjoy volunteering in their local school district and are leaders in various non-profit organizations catering towards children. They also donate to various national and local charities to include the Apraxia Kids, Wounded Warrior Project, and the Coalition to Support America’s Heroes.

He is also a devoted husband to his loving wife of 17 years. He is also the oldest of eight children – three brothers and four sisters.
Some of our hobbies include spending time with our family, writing, donating time and materials to charities, and going to the beach.
Having a pet isn’t just fun, it’s super important for childhood development. Pets and children go together like the beach and summertime. “Maria Is My Pal” is a whimsical look at children owning their first pet, and the responsibilities that come with ownership, the joys of having a pet, and how they form a commitment to each other while training to live their lives together.
Although a newcomer to this genre, readers would not know it from the way the author’s warm-hearted tale evokes laughter, smiles, joyful emotions, and reflections on his writing. His inspiration comes from watching his daughters grow and mature and become inspirations to many in their own right. His first book captures key moments in their childhood that intersect so many family stories— the first pet.
In the petting area, there was a turtle named Slow Boy, two fish called Lisa and Lori, and two parrots named Annie and Fannie. Fannie had yellow markings, and Annie had green on her wings. There was also a hamster named Fred and a cute little rabbit called Maria. She was white with a funny black pattern on her tail that seemed to move from side to side whenever her perky ears heard her name.
Of all the animals, Willow thought Maria was special. Whenever Mrs. Walls’ class visited the pets, Willow spent most of her time petting and holding Maria. Maria was very friendly and popular with all the students in the class. Somehow, Maria seemed happiest when Willow was near.
As the pets were placed back into their areas, James accidently knocked over a chair. It made a loud noise. The noise frightened Maria, and before anyone could move, Maria jumped onto a chair, hopped to the floor, and then ran out of an open door. Willow’s special pal and the children’s favorite pet was gone before anyone could catch her!
Willow, Mrs. Walls, and the other children tried to catch Maria, but she was too fast. Maria hopped and jumped until she was out of sight. Everyone looked and looked, but she could not be found. Maria was gone!
Willow and the other kids were very sad. Mrs. Walls tried her best to help the children understand that Maria would be okay and not to worry.
